G2 are undoubtedly the best team in the world.
Their winning streak might have been cut ‘short’ at just 21 map wins in a row, but their indomitable aura remains scarily intact.
An opening map win on Nuke felt ominous - when things got tight near the stretch, G2 found another gear and pulled away. Even without NiKo firing on all cylinders. huNter-, in his stead, was phenomenal; a trend which continued.
m0NESY had moments throughout where he was magic, and though the fairydust was quicksilver, it appeared from time to time. huNter-, of course, was a consistent threat. A superstar performance from map one to the unstoppable tide of G2 on map four, huNter- was the best player on the stage in the biggest game.
It was m0NESY who took control of Mirage when things got dicey, but it was so often huNter- who twisted the knife that m0NESY planted in Heroic.
Inferno went to Heroic, and it was a crumbling dam erected in front of G2. Their streak might have been stopped, but their victory could not be.
huNter-, again, felt unkillable on Ancient. A brick wall on the CT side and a katana on the T side. It felt close at the half, but G2 ran away from Heroic with surprising ease.
It was a truly great Grand Final, and in the greatest matches the best players stand tall.
G2 are the best team in the world.
Who’d have thought we’d have been saying that four months ago?
